Needful things

I have expensive tastes. Here lately I haven't been able to support those habits as in the past. Now, I just settle for adding things I want to my gigantor list. I was in Dillard's the other day buyin some pantays and of course I had to go by the perfume counter. Bad idea. I have been out of perfume for a long time now, and since I only like the expensive ones and would rather go without than wear anything cheap, I have been without for far too long. The new Cacharel Amor Amor caught my eye and my nose first. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw the familiar Boss logo. Me love Boss long time. So, I knew I'd like it without smelling it, but I had to anyway. Oh My Gawd. It's called Boss Intense and it smells like ... well, let's just say I got all turned on there in the big middle of Dillard's. I must have.

Not Atkins-friendly

Like me, Joelle is a little tired of the whole Atkins, low-carb business. She put it much better. I am still laughing my arse off.
As beautiful as she is, I'd dig him up for her. Yes, I have a crush.

In case anyone was wondering...

This guy is getting my vote.

no hatin'

In his final years, my grandfather suffered from many strokes, dementia, and extreme hard-of-hearingness (yes, I like to make words up). In one of his many visits to the hospital while he was still pretty much with it, yet exceedingly hard of hearing, the nurse was telling him what they were going to be doing to him. She was going down the list, and he was sitting there nodding. She asked him if he had ever had a catheter before and he suddenly became very indignant. "I am NOT a cat hater!", he tells her in a very offended tone of voice.

Cat hater. hahaha

Friday Five

At this moment, what is your favorite...

That's a tough one, I like so many. Lately the one going through my head is Hit That. Love me some Offspring.

Ahh food. Another toughie. I like it all. Today I am lovin me some salad blend with Butter Lettuce and Radicchio with BBQ Ranch dressing.

3. show?
Any Day Now, but I don't ever get to watch it. I wonder if they have it on DVD yet? My fave I do get to watch is ER but I have been less than impressed with it lately.

4. ...scent?
Snuggle Botanical Bliss fab softener. And Mr. Stopable's special blend cologne. Smells like candy. (why do I have that damn song in my head now, yeah, you know the one)

5. ...quote?
As you journey through life take a minute every now and then to give a thought for the other fellow. He could be plotting something. Hagar the Horrible ha!

If yer gonna spew, spew in this....

Today over at Mac's she wrote about something that brought back a disgusting memory for me. Go there and read her post and check the comments for what happened to me regarding that.


I don't know how or why I fell out of touch with Sister Hazel. I remember them from way back, and loved their stuff. Cruising around on All Blogged Up the other day she had some lyrics and a link at the end of one of her posts. I liked the one she had thrown up there (Your Mistake), and made a mental note to check them out. I'm glad I finally remembered. These guys are so great. They have improved much over the years that I haven't been listening to them, and there are several songs on their latest album, Chasing Daylight, that speak to me. Most notably Life Got in the Way, Killing Me Too, Effortlessly, and Can't Believe. Pretty decent sorta southern alternative rock. (LOL) Check them out, you won't be sorry.

Postcards from the Barditch

In my previous post, I made a statement that isn't entirely true. I do have friends. Not many, but I do. I have become very selective about those who I surround myself with, to the point that I am not surrounded. So, thank you to those friends for being the kind of people who I can let in. I have been doing some thinking today. And some talking. One of my friends will not simply let me "be". He doesn't do it on purpose. (Well, sometimes he does.) He is the kind of person who makes me want to be a better me. Some of y'all know that trying to get me to open up about the really relevant stuff is like trying to do dentistry on a bear. I have become a represser and suppresser in the interest of self-preservation, because I have simply become too tired for all of the angst and self-discovery and the gettinupoffofmyassanddoinsomethinaboutitall. As I was sayin to him, I am at another one of those crossroads you inevitably come to in life. But, due to the afore mentioned tiredness, I have just been sitting here park. I am tired of going down the wrong road and having to either backtrack or detour. I am tired of going along, minding my own business, and being broad-sided. I am tired of coming to the construction, the traffic jams, and the idiot motorists who litter life's highway. Trite analogy, but it's all I can come up with at the moment. I have been shifting from park to neutral here lately, trying to get revved up to go somewhere. I know I need to. I keep running across people and words who make me think of who I could and should be. This morning over at Jett's, this post made me sit and ponder for a bit, and light a little fire of inspiration in my clogged up carburetor. And from there, I was led to this here post. That sums up a lot of my feelings. She says it much better than I can at the moment. I need a vacation, y'all. And I need that sit-down lunch we been talkin about, Jay Dee Gee. And I need to get in gear.

There's no place like home

For sure. I lived in one place for most of my life. I was born there, raised there, and swore I'd always get out of there. I've moved away 4 times, and for some reason or another I always ended up getting sucked back there. This time I've sworn I'd rather live on the street in a cardboard box than move back there again. So, why is it today I wish that I was back there? Ahh.. homesickness. I think that mostly it is that I am not happy where I am right now. Oh sure, I have a nice apt. and live in a decent enough town. But, it isn't going for me right now. I have not been able to find a job, and I have not been able to find any friends. I do not have any family in this town (save my ex husband and that doesn't really count). I'm lonely. I want somewhere that I can go visit if I am tired of my place. I want friends who drop by and hang out. I want my family close so that when I need them, or they need me, it's not an hour drive to get there. I want to live back in the country where it is peaceful and there are no neighbors and my kids can go outside and play and I don't have to watch them like a hawk. I could go on and on with the good stuff, but then I'd have to start listing the bad stuff. Not that I don't have bad stuff here. My problem isn't all situational. The usually rational adult me knows that. The scared little girl (who I never admit is still there) me doesn't care, she just wants to go home.

nanananananananana, and really bad eggs...Drink up me hearties YO HO!

You are The Cap'n!
Some men are born great, some achieve greatness and some slit the throats of any man that stands between them and the mantle of power. You never met a man you couldn't eviscerate. Not that mindless violence is the only avenue open to you - but why take an avenue when you have complete freeway access? You are the definitive Man of Action. You are James Bond in a blousy shirt and drawstring-fly pants. Your swash was buckled long ago and you have never been so sure of anything in your life as in your ability to bend everyone to your will. You will call anyone out and cut off their head if they show any sign of taking you on or backing down. You cannot be saddled with tedious underlings, but if one of your lieutenants shows an overly developed sense of ambition he may find more suitable accommodations in Davy Jones' locker. That is, of course, IF you notice him. You tend to be self absorbed - a weakness that may keep you from seeing enemies where they are and imagining them where they are not.

What's Yer Inner Pirate?
brought to you by The Official Talk Like A Pirate Web Site. Arrrrr!

Have I mentioned that my lastest fascination is Pirates of the Caribbean? I almost didn't watch it because of Johnny Depp. In fact, I didn't watch it until this month. Johnny D. has kind of put me off the last few years. The whole downhill slide after Edward Scissorhands and What's Eating Gilbert Grape. But, Orlando Bloom won out. Mmmm.. elf or pirate... I'd watch him anyday. So, color me shocked when my favorite in the movie was Captain Jack Sparrow. That part was made for him, or he made that part, either way.... I'm hooked. Aye! Avast!
